This place was very affordable, the ocean views were stunning, and the many lounging options were awesome. The food was also really good, especially for the price. However, two nights in a row someone tried to get into our room in the night (around midnight)....More

We stayed here for 6 nights following an intense 3 week tour from Victoria falls. Mbuyuni was a very peaceful resort with clean spacious rooms and a clean swimming pool area. The food is awesome here! Would highly recommend this place if you need to...More

We booked this lovely, personal and friendly spot and had the best time! The staff are truly lovely - friendly, helpful and caring. The place is small and therefore intimate - we met some great people

its a very nice place and a good location. but if you want to have some food there you need to wait at least one houer, sometimes up to two hoers for a pizza... there is a nice pool, and its very family friendly

From Memory the pool is not monitored after dark. There is no gate around the pool or security on site to stop you going near so from that, the pool would be accessible at all hours.

Not much night life out there. I suggest if you go north... probably better coral reefs as well.
